Drawing on Painted Paper

Last night, after several weeks away due to work, holidays and junk, I returned to life drawing at the Shed. On a previous night I'd noticed another member of the group using paper that appeared to have been prepared with a coloured wash and I decided to try it out. I took two sheets of fairly lightweight sketchpaper (110gsm cartridge) and painted them with a light wash of black acrylic paint. The paper is seriously prone to buckling but I found if you work quickly and evenly right out to the edges, the paper expands uniformly without too many wrinkles.
